Oooh pink piggies - I want some - now!Are there enough of those sweeties for Joe?
This has really set me to reminiscing. Acid drops, rhubarb & custard lollies, fruit salad chews, rainbow kayli (sp?), bluebird toffees, sigh.You can get the sour apple rings in Lidl, they do peach ones too.(99p for 400g - bargain!)
I always liked fruit salad chews and flying saucers. They were all pretty rubbishy though when you look back.I liked the stuff we made at home best, peppermint creams and peanut brittle.
I see that choccy cigarettes are now known as "candy sticks"Sweet tobacco hasn't been renamed though -I suggest "Berryfields Number 3" -peat free, of course!
Very very Good Arabella.
If gardening bods did traditional sweeties then I'd be partial to Alys's Floral Gums.Obviously I cannot mention Alys's Cherry Lips as they would be a bit below the belt!Peter Seabrooke's Foam Bananas might also fall into that category....So I'll leave you with the highly plausible & entirely wholesome image of Pippa Greenwood and her Sherbet Dibber Dabber.
Oh what fun - I can see a whole new meme and reminiscence developing here!You've chosen very well for me - I do enjoy sweets that blow your head off.My best friend on the school bus was rather partial to Parma Violets - because the taste was so awful. Go figure.
I actually disliked the taste of Parma Violets but always wanted to have them. Something mysterious andflower fairyish about them and such a lovely name.
I have to confess a sneaky liking for Parma violet cashews. (Sorry but we all have our foibles) but what about Black Jacks. sherbet dib dabs, fruit salads liquorice bootlaces! And loads of these were bought for about 6d (2.5p now - help this makes me feel like an old **** which is rather out of the frame when one is clearly only 29 on a bad day)I've just ha a thought - liquorice humbugs ... !
Are you sure you aren't implying that I"m a bit spaced out? I thank you kindly, but in real life, I would prefer Rosy Apples yum yum yum
